The Will Green Column

Dear Woodborough Web readers,

I have now completed the ‘skills section’ for my Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme so I’m afraid to say the Will Green Column has now finished.  I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my articles, I have certainly enjoyed looking into different subjects and passing on my knowledge.

All that is left now is for me to complete the ‘volunteering section’ (which is in March) and I’ll be all done……next stop Buckingham Palace!! 

Thanks again,

Will Green

FRIDAY 1st February 2019 – Broadcast Brothers with Steve Jenner
Steve Jenner was a teacher for many years before embarking on a broadcasting career. He and his brother Paul founded two FM radio stations providing commercial services in Derbyshire and Staffordshire. He’s been breakfast DJ for nearly four years, drivetime presenter, sports commentator and all airshifts in between and spent a spell as Managing Director.

His book, ‘Broadcast Brothers – On The Radio’ tells the story of two brothers and their desperate race to win the last ‘new’ commercial radio licence in mainland England. Told as a dual – narrator autobiographical comedy, it gives a terrifying insight into the ups and downs of ‘pirate’ broadcasting, is an hilarious ‘Spinal Tap’ for UK radio and is the East Midlands ‘born and bred’ answer to Danny Baker’s ‘Going To Sea In A Sieve’. Come and hear Steve’s fascinating story!

Tickets £6 full , £5 concessions/children. There is a licensed bar plus ice cream, popcorn, hot drinks and a delicious selection of home made cakes.
